UK Go Karting
You're here: UK Go Karting / Juniors

Juniors' / Kids' Go Kart Racing

In all likelihood the next Formula 1 champion will have started his career in a go-kart. Youngsters from eight years upwards are competing on a regular basis - so whether you are trying the sport to see if your child has potential, or simply looking for a different type of birthday treat, a day's go-karting will make an unforgettable experience. Get in touch and we will arrange a party that your child will remember for a long time and that will be the envy of all his/her friends!

What ages?

Most tracks will allow eight year-olds and upwards to drive under supervised conditions and some are geared up to provide birthday packages as well. Currently there are only around sixteen tracks in the whole of the UK that can cater for under-eights.

Most venues, whether they are indoor circuit or outdoors, will NOT allow adults and juniors on the track at the same time, but there a few that cater for families and here you can enjoy karting in a safe environment. We have all the details you will need to get your party on the track, whatever their age.

For parents who are convinced that their child has what it takes to be a racing champion then why not call us for information on kart clubs and the steps you will need to take to get your youngster to the top step of the podium?
